the eagle of the ninth By rosemary sutcliffpuffin

First published in 1954, this exciting, historical adventure novel for children is now a major motion picture called The Eagle. Rosemary Sutcliff — who spent most of her life in a wheelchair — takes us through an epic journey set in Roman Britain. In 117 AD, Flavius Aquila led the Ninth Legion on a mission and not one of them was seen again. After 20 years, Aquila’s son Marcus sets out on a mission to solve the mystery and restore his father’s honour. To know more of the thrilling details, read the book.
